Right Here, Right Now

It’s over five years since I last added anything to In Theory, my repository for old political theory essays. So here are three more, from my halcyon days as a masters student twenty years ago.

Ambiguous Utopias compares Ursula Le Guin’s novel The Dispossessed with Thomas More’s original Utopia.

“We Think with Other Thoughts” looks at changing conceptualizations of rights in the American revolutionary era.

Why Was There No League of Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights? considers how notions of human rights changed in the first half of the twentieth century.

As far as my student writings in political theory go, all that’s left are a couple of first-year essays (one good, one not; both handwritten and buried in a box somewhere) and my masters dissertation, which will need a fair bit more preparation and contextualization than these. So for now, In Theory is finally looking more or less complete. In theory.
